The Bounce Back Now (BBN) team is committed to supporting the emotional recovery of people affected by a disaster, such as a hurricane, tornado, flood, earthquake, or mass violence incident. Many people experience stress, anxiety, low mood, or sleep problems after a disaster, but don’t know where to turn for help. This app will help you track your emotional recovery and will provide you with coping tools to help you manage stress, anxiety, mood, and sleep. If you want to talk to or text a disaster crisis counseling and support specialist, the BBN app will help to connect you. BBN was developed by healthcare professionals at the Medical University of South Carolina, Boston University, and the University of Nebraska and was rigorously tested in research to provide an effective recovery tool for disaster survivors worldwide. BBN is available in English and Spanish.

Research and Development:
BBN was developed by experts in clinical psychology, psychiatry, computer science, and public health and tested in two large studies with over 2,500 adults and teenagers affected by the 2011 tornadoes in Joplin and Alabama as well as Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, Florence, and Michael. These studies were funded by the National Institutes of Health. The app modules are based on best practice strategies and guidelines for reducing post-disaster mental and behavioral health symptoms.
